Jonas Engel / Asger Thomsen

Jonas Engel: alto saxophone, clarinet, modified p-trumpet
Asger Thomsen: double bass

Based on free-form stream-of-consciousness improvisations with a focus on otherworldly sounds and fragmented gestures, the duo have come together to explore the outer limits of the acoustic potential of traditional instrumentation through preparation and self-developed instrumental technique.

Kölschner is a new live album featuring German reedist Jonas Engel and Danish double bassist Asger Thomsen. The two have been working together in many projects but this is the first published statement as a duo.

Recorded live in Cologne 2022
Released November 9, 2023
